Cozy Day!

The class has worked so hard this week! To celebrate hard work, and the culmination of our Penguin studies, we will have "Cozy Day". On Friday, we will wear cozy clothes, enjoy the birthday breakfast, and have a cozy day. Stuffed animal freinds are allowed, but no blankies or pillows please!!

Due to the chilly weather, we will change the time frame of our outdoor experience for Monday. The plan is to leave Union at 10:30, and return by 2:00. If we have cold kids, we will head back to school earlier. Our goal is to learn outside, not to have frozen first graders!!!

100 Days of First Grade

 What an exciting day! We welcomed all of the stuffed animal friends to our classroom, and reminded them of the expectations in first grade. We also read 100 books as a class. Our guest reader, Sarah Kinter, shared a book called " One Green Apple". Sarah is a volunteer with "Reading to End Racism."

100 Hoots by Day 100

The class is working to earn 100 hoots by Wednesday- the 100th day of first grade. If the goal is met, we will celebrate with a "Pajama and Stuffed Animal Day". Please plan on having your child wear PJ's to school on Wednesday. It is looking like they will meet their goal. By 2:30 today there were over 40 hoots in our class "nest."
